My wife and I just spent two evenings at the Handlery. It was excellent. The concierge personnel were especially helpful with the Muni and Muni passes. The place was spotless and everyone was friendly. We will be back there the last week of July.

This hotel was a decent value for a family staying in San Francisco. The thing we liked best about this hotel was opening the sliding glass doors to look down into the city. I feared it would be noisy at night, but once the door was shut, it kept out most sound very well. Lots of things to do nearby.... More

Just had an amazing time with my family in San Francisco and stayed at the Handlery Union Square Hotel. The reception staff were excellent and the check in process was seamless. Our premier grade room was very comfortable and had a great view of the city at the rear of the hotel. The hotel is very central to Union Square... More

A somehow relaxing hotel close to the heart of San Francisco, as downtown is literally on its doorstep. On my first and only visit to this beautiful city the Handlery served as an excellent base to explore. The city is hilly but I found it also to be quite walkable, but if you don't fancy walking the public transport system... More

Took a short vacation to visit my sister, and we stayed at this magnificent hotel. The location, rooms, comfort, staff, all exceptional. This hotel offers a great location to be in the middle of all the action. It is busy and it is noisy throughout as you are in the heart of the city, but you get to experience everything... More

A very central location to all the public transport to get to and from Pier 39, the Golden Gate Bridge and all other sightseeing, touristy attractions. The staff were a bit abrupt (I think would be the right word to describe them), both the concierge & lady at the front desk. But it didn't matter because we were so busy... More

The hotel is old styled but clean and well maintained. Best of all, it is almost on Union Square, where all the food and shops are. We walked almost everywhere and the only problem was there wasn't enough time to see and do it all.

We stayed over SF Pride weekend, the package included free parking, but when we entered our lovely premier room there was also free Grandstand tickets and Pride grab bags of goodies waiting for us. The service was great from beginning to end. The room was great too, everything worked and was very comfortable. The location is perfect and amenities like... More
